Truly many prayers !! 🙏🏻

I am humbled I was able to help care for him for so many past years & enjoy German pancakes & many other amazing dishes he prepared!

And he taught me so much about supplements & liquid silver. I loved our car rides to appointments where he would teach the doctors a thing or two.

Knowing he is in a better place & no longer suffering medically brings peace to my heart.

RIP NELSON.
